As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Sunday Snapshots: Patisserie and Paparazzi

A favorite time on Sunday afternoons is Dessert Time!  There may have been some "Can I be done now?" or "How much do I have to eat?" or "May we be excused?" at dinner time. But it doesn't take long for the children to come from anywhere in the house when dessert is announced!  (Even if it's not announced. They just know.)  

I am seldom the dessert maker. Kristin and Kati both love to bake, and Bekah and Owen are following in their footsteps. We have some delectable Sunday afternoon desserts! Yesterday, Kristin brought gingerbread cupcakes with cinnamon icing. Yum! I went to my napkin cabinet and chose some that were decorated with tempting treats and the word "Patisserie." Perfect. 

While the children were eating their dessert, I slipped into the dining room to snap a few pics. 

Ben (5): Gran, what are you doing?
Me: Taking your picture. I'm the paparazzi.
Ben: I don't even know what that means.
Me: (~a big grandmother smile~)


  1. Cute! And nice to have some bakers on hand! Dessert is always good, but it's not my favorite thing to make.

  2. Ooo la la! You were being French yesterday, mon ami!

    I love your family Sundays!

    And I kind of like you all too!


  3. LOVED this. The cupcakes sound wonderful! Enjoy your day!

  4. I am known for serving messy desserts to the quads on Wednesdays! That's a bath night and I stick around to help with that as well! This week it is a Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler!!! I think I am going to love it!
    You have a table FULL of grand looking GRANDS!!!!

  5. Sweet photos (pun intended). It's so much fun when everyone comes running for dessert from anywhere.

  6. I come running when dessert is announced too!! :)
